Bugs & Viruses Mac Antivirus developer Intego might have stumbled across an OS X specific virus being offered for auction that targets a previously unknown ZIP archive vulnerability. From Intego's posting, it appears that an enterprising auctioneer seems determined to make sure that his name is one that is not forgotten when it comes to Apple security, claiming that his exploit is a poisoned ZIP archive that will "KO the system and Hard Drive" when unarchived.

Then there are those which are propagated through websites - to which I have to ask myself - what websites are you going to that propagate these worms and virus's? they don't seem like very reputable websites if they're infecting their audience!


It could be a server that got hacked and is now infected.

I think the real question nobody is asking is this: if they spotted a guy trying to sell a virus, why didn't somebody break both of his legs? I bet the little bastard would think twice about writing another virus ;)
